Yuri Prokhorov, acting Director General of RSCC, presented a promising project on a multifunctional satellite communication system "Express-RV" at the conference Satellite Russia & CIS 2020 on July 23, 2020. The development of the project is provided by the federal project "Information Infrastructure" of the national program "Digital Economy of the Russian Federation" with a deadline in 2024.
“The implementation of the Express-RV project will contribute to scientific and technological progress and the formation of new products and services”, noted Yuri Prokhorov. “We expect the main market in the commercial segment to be a relatively new market of satellite communications and broadcasting on public vehicles (aircraft, ships, long-distance trains, intercity buses) and individual vehicles (cars and trucks).”
First Deputy Director General for Development of Orbital Constellation and Perspective Projects of the State Corporation Roscosmos Yuri Urlichich and Secretary General of the Association of Satellite Operators of the EMEA region Aarti Holla-Maini also noted the importance and relevance of the implementation of the satellite constellations projects in various orbits, including high-elliptical ones.
